The Spurs chairman has reportedly turned to the 46-year-old after failing to reach an agreement with Netherlands boss Louis van Gaal, the bookmakers favourite for the job.

Spurs’ current head-coach Tim Sherwood looks certain to be replaced in the summer, with Levy keen to appoint a more experience boss who will appeal to the club’s fans.

Klopp guided Dortmund to back-to-back Bundesliga titles before losing last season’s Champions League final to fellow Germans Bayern Munich.

The charismatic tactician is one of the finest and most sought-after bosses on the planet and has also been linked with Manchester United, Arsenal and Barcelona in recent weeks.

Even if Levy could persuade Klopp to take the job at White Hart Lane, the Dortmund head-coach has a contract until 2018 and it would cost Spurs £20m to land him this summer, say the Sun.

Tottenham have also been linked with Frank de Boer of Ajax and Southampton’s Mauricio Pochettino.
